Thread: Light gun grease on rails?

  1. #1

    Default Light gun grease on rails?

    I have PM9. I put tw25 light grease on the slide rails. I have been told it reduces wear because of friction on metal to metal slide and frame, ie: Sigs. Will this make a difference with a PM9?

    I use light grease on the rails of all of my firearms. It stays put a lot longer than oil, and seems to work just fine. Polymer or otherwise.

    I also use tw25 on all my guns, have for a long time. I think Ole Jocko's the one that turned me onto that procedure, so just after Moses brought down the tablets I reckon.

    For the past 10 years or so, I've used a synthetic grease called Superlube. Stays in place, never had any problems. Remove the old with a separate Q-tip before applying a new dab with a Q-tip. You can get the stuff at just about any hardware or auto parts shop. A tube lasts a year or more.

    Tw25b is great stuff. Works well on any pistol.
    Judging by today's left wing, looks like Senator Joe McCarthy was right after all.

    An 8 ounce jar would last about 400 years. A small tube is all you need.

    I use ALG 000 thin grease. It's a non petroleum extremely slippery grease.

    I too use Supelube, we used to use at one of my places of employment, a tube followed me home.

    I use a model car paint brush and lightly lube the rails on all my carry guns. Doesn't run, good -45F to +450F. A little dab will do ya.
